Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 5/6/81 Caution?

Hey Dead Max - from an old Head's perspective, the definitions change but the names they stay the same. The themes may not be exactly the same, but the basics hang around, hence folks just stick with the oldies. The Caution jam isn't exact, as you indicate, but it contains elements (speed riffing etc.), which bring it into the Caution stadium. The Spanish jam is similar - different genres have different sounds - like the keys, tonalities, and the way they resolve musical sentences. Spanish music sounds very distinct and even if they weren't playing the chords exactly as before, it's still the Spanish jam. I think Mr. Hucker explained this well below. Before the strafing. Just my humble....

I see what you are saying, DH, and I can agree with it.


I still don't think that caution jam has any elements of caution except that it's kind of fast and crazy. This jam is just them not wanting to leave the stage just yet. Caution, on the other hand, had a distinct bass line that would bowl you over then Jerry would come sliding into third base under the bass notes and let 'er rip. This does not come close.

(I do see your point though)

And I see your point too. On to the next discovery.
